What is sclerotherapy treatment? | Vein Clinics of America

(upbeat electronic music) [Narrator] What is sclerotherapy? Schlerotherapy is a safe, proven medical procedure that
treats both the symptoms and the cause of varicose
veins and spider veins. Schlerotherapy treatment sessions usually take less than half an hour with no hospitalization required. For schlerotherapy treatments, a series of injections
of a schlerosant solution are administered directly into varicose veins or spider veins. The injected solution
acts to close off the vein with abnormal valves, sealing it off from the other healthy veins. Over time the treated veins shrink and are eventually absorbed by the body. Afterwards the blood flow is diverted to healthy veins, improving circulation. (upbeat electronic music)
